Tonight at 8:30 and 10:00 p.m., New Haven’s Firehouse 12 will present innovative saxophonist/composer Steve Lehman and his trio, featuring bassist Chris Tordini and drummer Damion Reid, performing scaled down arrangements from his acclaimed new octet release, Travail, Transformation and Flow (Pi Recordings), as well as other music.

Lehman’s record, which daringly integrates elements of spectral harmony into jazz, has collected a long list of positive reviews (including this one on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross), and led critics to call him “an inspired talent” (John Fordham, The Guardian) and “a major force in jazz’s avant-garde” (Michael J. West, Washington City Paper) who is “thinking about jazz in a new way” (Will Layman, PopMatters.com) by opening “his own corridor of exploration” (Nate Chinen, New York Times).

Learn more about Lehman, his music and his longstanding connection to the area in feature articles in this week’s New Haven Advocate and yesterday’s Hartford Courant.
